April’s exhibition features artist Loriann Signori, whose oil and pastel paintings focus on American contemporary landscapes. The artist will be at the gallery answering questions and working at her easel during gallery hours.

Loriann Signori is a luminescent landscape painter. Her work is based in traditional methods and defined by colorist tendencies. Her paintings are an emotional interpretation of time and place.

Demonstrating a diversity of medium, Signori’s talent has been showcased in prestigious galleries and museums throughout the East Coast. Her work is included in private and corporate collections in the United States and abroad. Currently, she is represented by the Waverly Street Gallery in Bethesda, MD and the John Matthew Moore Gallery in Mclean, VA.

Regarding this exhibition, Signori says, “Often, as dusk slips into nightfall, one has a feeling of vastness, of the unknown. In that moment is the realization that lost things can’t be found and letting go is the only way. At some points in life the immenseness of this moment becomes more prominent and time becomes truly suspended. My journey has begun this year with the passing of my father. I want my paintings to reflect the qualities of this moment: suspended in time with its mixture of love, frustration, emptiness, happiness, beauty and loss. In nature, heaviness and light entwine at the same time. This body of work is fueled by my search for a way to interpret this breadth of emotion. And as in life, all control must be surrendered.”
